Second, the game wasn't too well received, so who knows If Eidos ordered a cancellation and Straight-Up Films just didn't tell anyone out of embarrassment? Third, SUF mistakenly said there would be a new Thief game based on the plot of the movie, which Eidos President got angry over.
Finally, they haven't replied at all to my Facebook comments on their page asking about it, and also seem to never answer their phone on their website's phone number. The few times they have, they are deliberately quiet about it. I just wish I knew what was going on.

I'm pretty sure with the abysmal reception of the Thief reboot at launch, it would have been axed immediately. I'd heard there might have been some kind of film adaptation but I'd be very surprised if they were still working on it at this point. We're lucky if anyone ever thinks of picking up the IP again. It had some years to overcome, an old fanbase to please and a new era of AAA expectations; it currently spells financial disaster for any studio interested in the series. Sadly it's all because of marketing but that's what's killed Thief in every iteration of it's history. Even at it's peak, the Thief games have been plagued with coexisting in collapsing companies from Looking Glass to Ion Storm. It's a testament to the developers to have pushed out such great games in the past, it's just too bad that the most recent release had rather more sealed it's fate for the time being.

its in development, which is movie speak for still working on script. this can take up to 10 years, if its says in production, then thats movie speak for we are filming it. can take up to 6 months. post production is cgi, adding music, adding voice as its usually re-dubbed can take 2 to 3 years.
in development also means looking for backers, locations, art direction, storyboards, looking for the actors to appear in it, screen tests of those actors, unless it turns out to be an animations, then you still need actors to do the voices.
